Airline agrees to fly Dominicans hit by Spain’s crisis back home
Madrid.- Dominican authorities in Madrid and Air Europa airlines agreed on compensation to fly Dominicans hit by Spain’s economic crisis back to their country.
Dominican consul in Madrid Frank Bencosme made the announcement Wednesday at Barajas Airport, where he accompanied the second group Dominicans to benefit from the assistance program.
“We’re carrying out president Danilo Medina’s instructions to assist Dominicans living in Spain who’ve fallen into a state of precariousness, and yearn to return to the land of their birth,” said Bencosme, who thanked Air Europa president Pepe Hidalgo for his support.
The diplomat said more families will continue returning in the next few days as Spain’s unemployment has dashed their dream of a better life, and instead live in poverty and survive barely on charity from the consulate and NGOs.
